Love Party (Italian: Partito dell'Amore, PdA) is a political party in Italy co-founded on July 12, 1991 by pornstars Moana Pozzi and Ilona Staller, the latter a member of the Chamber of Deputies.

Political line[edit]

The party was organized by Riccardo Schicchi, Cicciolina's manager, as a parody of the traditional political parties. However, it was later identified as a counterculture movement by exponents Mauro Biuzzi and Marcella Zingarini.[1]

Elections[edit]

After a brief alliance with Carlo Fatuzzo's Pensioner's Party,[2] Pozzi ran unsuccessfully for the parliament at the general election in 1992.[3] In 1993, Pozzi ran for the Mayor of Rome.[4]
